Yes, I agree that containing all of this behavior in the kernel
would be the best way to go.  There's nothing wrong with the
hotplug interfaces, I just wasn't able to find anything that
worked for me.  Any help you could provide as to which interfaces
are the proper ones to use to hotplug/unplug devices from the
kernel would be very helpful. thanks.
